Short Story Night Is Back
Virtually, that is. Back in the day, B.C., (before Covid-19), Richie Zaborowske, of the Neenah Public Library, hosted a once-a-month Short Story Night at the Lion's Tail Brewing Company & Tap Room in downtown Neenah. That program was suspended in March, when SARS-CoV-2 changed life the world over.
Participants in Short Story Night would read the same short story beforehand in preparation for the event and then discuss it at the Lion's Tail. Other activities, including speakers, trivia, and plenty of laughs, would also be part of the evening. Oh, and the beer.
With the partial re-opening of the Neenah Public Library, Short Story Night is back but only in a virtual way (it's BYOB). You may participate by using this zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83399505625 on Tuesday, June 23rd, at 7:00 p.m. Read Kiley Reid's "George Washington's Teeth" beforehand and join in. Kempton Freeman, from the Appleton School District's Equity and Inclusion Office, will offer insight on the story's theme of racial injustice.
